According to Randy Pausch’s “Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams”
So that was a bit of a setback. But remember, the brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls aren’t there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.
Remember brick walls let us show our dedication. They’re there to separate us from the people who don’t really want to achieve their childhood dreams. Don’t bail. The best of the gold’s at the bottom of barrels of crap.
